Egg Palletising robot installation at Hotham Eggs
Bulk Automation provides one of the most competitive egg palletising systems on the market, the flexible robot palletising system can be adapted to suit any customers need from a one on the floor or two on the floor system.
The ABB 6 Axis robot is perfect for this high precision process capable of palletising in excess of 600 eggs per minute. The bespoke designed egg gripping head simultaneously picks 24 trays of eggs and places them on the waiting pallet, the gripper then also collects the plastic preform layer divider allowing an all in one reliable system. The egg palletising system integrates with all types of egg packers increasing output speed and minimising the time required to pack the daily production.
“Bulk Automation installed our BAE200-R in 3-4 days, with minimal effect on our packing operation. Being able to continue to pack our eggs during the installation was a big help. The egg palletising robot is proving to be very reliable and, based on performance so far, should be a great investment. It is already reducing the time required to pack each day, and allowing staff to concentrate on achieving the best egg quality rather than stacking pallets. Being able to load 2 pallets of eggs at the same time enhances this efficiency. The training and after-sales service and support from the team at Bulk Automation has been first class, with knowledgeable engineers involved at each stage, and always available at the end of a phone if required “
